I would presume it would take place in ALSAA, Dublin Airport :D

Seriously though, ALSAA is a big sporting complex just on the way into the airport.. its on the road that runs behind rwy 28. Is that the information youre looking for or are you asking about the tests? :oops:

Jesus I thought my eyes were deceiving me on Sunday! :shock: I knew I saw a S76! :lol: I saw it from a distance (type of grey/white) flying low northbound along the coast.. I heard it miles off though, but thought it was an A109 at first!
